Having read and reread everyone's observations and remarks and questions about the Conid pens, I seem to be on the brink of ordering one--but which? As so often, when there are many attractive possibilities, any individual choice begins to feel as if it is missing something, simply because it doesn't have everything.
I want the gorgeous red of the AntwerpPen and the titanium knobs of the kingsize demonstrator (which probably wouldn't go with the AntwerpPen red even if the two were available together) but without the visual mess of the demonstrator, plus an ink window. And I want the size 8 titanium nib, because why have titanium unless the nib is big enough for it to make a difference, but I want it in a smaller body. And I'd prefer not to feel like a hypocrite for caring what a pen that first attracted me for its ability to rise above the superficial looks like.
If I dither long enough I may go back to the lesser Sailors.
Do those of you who had a hard time choosing a Conid pen body regret your choices, or did you simply buy a second (or third or fourth) one?
